Toad In A Hole?

The IGWRT Toad challenge today has got me hopping to it rather late, but I couldn't resist a bit of playful nonsense to round off the week. Sorry, Fireblossom, but thanks a bunch for the spark which called it into being! LOL

The Inebriated Sherpa
forged his way ahead-
but those who followed after him,
ended up as dead!

Drink and climbing do not mix -
no wonder he got in a fix
when he lead his party up the mountain -
he should have sipped from a soda fountain!

  1. I think our sherpas went out together on the same bender :)

  2. No, drinking and climbing should never mix, especially when social climbing ;-)

  7. I now deeply distrust sherpas. And I had thought they were enlightened! Hee hee.

  8. Laughing and not sure if it's your poem or Jabblog's answer. Actually, social climbing is probably less likely to kill the drunken sherpa, but he'd be booted out of social gatherings toute de suite.
    Poor old sherpas, more than one person has them drunk and misbehaving with FB's prompt!

  11. I'm wondering why you changed your rhyme pattern from one stanza to the next?
